Bottom line: The Shield tablet should pique your interest. At its core, it appears to be a solid tablet that can do dual duty for work and play. The optional cover will prop it up for desktop use with its Wi-Fi Direct controller for fun, or with a Bluetooth keyboard for productivity. Or you can connect it to a monitor or HDTV for a big-screen experience.
We'll have an in-depth review as soon as Nvidia can get a unit in our hands. Our first impression: The Shield tablet has the potential to supplant the Google Nexus 7 as the tablet Android aficionados prefer.
